BRAKE PAD REPLACEMENT

I was recently told by an automotive repair center that when new brake pads are installed on my Mercedes that new rotors also have to be installed. Is this true with Mercedes'? In the past, with other vehicles, I've been able to simply have the rotors turned unless they were worn too thin from previous turnings.

Hi there,

There is no reason to replace the rotors if they are still with in the thickness tolerance.
